"What It's Like" as written by and David Penner Josh Damon Gabriel....
Do you know what it's like
When your world seems to change overnight
And it feels like the earth could break
Tell me, do you know what it takes

Stop my heart, don't let it break
Is it true that you did what you said
And it's hard for me to see you so far
And it's hard to see you for what you are

Do you know what it's like
When your world seems to change overnight
And it feels like the earth could break
Tell me, do you know what it takes

Hold me breath, hold me down
Take the hand of god and lead me to drown
And it's fine to say that it's not real
And maybe I won't run, and I won't feel

Do you know what it's like
When your world seems to change overnight
And it feels like the earth could break
Tell me, do you know what it takes

Heaven won't ever forgive
Making it hurt when you see my everyday
My everynight I hide, I hide
I say why

Do you know what it's like
When your world seems to change overnight
And it feels like the earth could break
Tell me, do you know what it takes

    General CommentThe song speaks volumes to me about loss in one's life and the anger that can go with it. Maybe, more importantly, it attempts to find out if others can relate to your pain. I liked the original version of this song, but the Sneijder Remix really "hit it home" for me.

    My InterpretationFor me, the ultimate breakup song, breaking up with one's self. What "it" takes? your world.
